Your New Bourbon: Sponsored Shot

While there are dozens of bourbons on store shelves, there are actually just a handful of recipes that distillers use. And in fact, most of their whiskies are made from corn, barley and spicy rye. But there are a select few that feature corn, barley and sweeter and smoother wheat.

The latest one is Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon ($25), whose third grain is winter wheat. It’s crafted by the acclaimed father-and-son team of master distillers Parker and Craig Beam, who also make the award-winning Rittenhouse Rye and Elijah Craig Bourbon. For Larceny, they choose barrels that have aged for between six and 12 years on the top floors of their warehouses.

As a result, the whiskey is a robust 92-proof, tastes great neat or on the rocks and is strong enough not to be lost in a cocktail. We like the aptly named Stone Cold Larceny, which was created by St. Louis bartender Ted Kilgore and combines the spirit with apple juice and ginger beer.

Cheers!
